We’re excited that you will join us for an amazing morning of open water swimming.
Please read the following for everything you need to know before you swim.
In the week leading up to the Round, you will be emailed an e-ticket with your Race Number. Please check your details are correct and you are listed in the correct event (if you have any concerns please email: email@example.com).
Please bring a printout or have the e-ticket open on your phone at check-in to reduce waiting queues.
*Please note that the below times are subject to change due to swimmer numbers and conditions.
The check-in area will be located on the beach in front of the Scarborough Amphitheatre and open from 6:30am to 7:30am. Please arrive early to avoid the “last-minute rush”.
You must bring your e-ticket with your race number with you to check-in and proceed directly to the tent marked with your swim distance!
Your entry pack includes a timing chip, race tattoo and race coloured cap depending on your chosen distance. it is compulsory to wear these at all times during the swim for identification purposes. Note: OWS silicon caps can replace the cap in your pack as long as the colour matches the distance you have entered.
NOTE THAT ENTRY PACK PICK UP & LATE REGISTRATIONS WILL CLOSE AT 7:30AM SHARP. IF YOU ARRIVE AFTER THIS TIME YOU WILL NOT BE PERMITTED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE EVENT.
THIS IS A WATER SAFETY MEASURE AND IS STRICTLY ADHERED TO.
Note: If you have purchased an OWS silicon cap from the merchandise store, you can collect this from the Vorgee Merchandise Tent on the beach and use this for your swim, provided it is the same colour as the distance you are swimming. Unused latex caps can be returned to check-in or the Vorgee Merchandise Tent for repacking and to do your part to help us to reduce waste this summer.
You can register online, or at the help desk (found at the front of the check-in area) on the day of the event right up until 30mins before the first event, when late registrations and distance changes close.
Note: You can change your registered distance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. It is recommended if you wish to change your distance to do so as early as possible to avoid queues.
You will be issued a new e-ticket and race number when you change your distance and will not be able to use the old one.
All timing chips must be returned as soon as you have finished the swim. Failure to do so will incur a $20 fee for the replacement.
You will receive two individually numbered race tattoos. These need to be applied to the outside of each of your arms.
No need to wait in line, you can apply the tattoo yourself:
1. Separate tattoos
2. Remove plastic coating
3. Apply to arm with logo at the top of the arm as pictured below
4. Apply water for 1min (wet cloth is best) or until soaked through
5. Slowly remove paper
Note: Make sure to apply the race tattoo before your sunscreen.
Please allow plenty of time to park and check-in as cut off times are strict. Remember to follow all road signs and parking rules.
